Shenandoah National Park is comprised mainly of a long, skinny range of mountains that range 2500 to 3500 ft in elevation. Along the top of the range is a scenic road, Skyline Drive. The park is known for it`s scenic views from Skyline Drive and my wife and I have traveled it several times. It will not disappoint, especially during the Autumn fall colors.

There are 4 campgrounds that are fairly evenly placed along Skyline and a lodge with motel like cabins near the highest point. The most popular campground is Big Meadow and you have to reserve a spot ahead of time as it stays full most of the season. It`s also probably the most popular because it`s the only campground with showers. They are coin operated and it cost 4 quarters for 5 minutes.

We have stayed in one of the lodge buildings and also at Matthews Arm campground. The facilities are well kept and clean.

Really the best part about the Park is not the campgrounds but the park as a whole. There are numerous excellent trails for hiking and backpacking. Back country camping is allowed and necessary on some of the trails because of the distance. Wildlife is generally used to people so it is common to see deer, fox, and sometimes black bear. Big Meadow is what the name says, a huge meadow that is full of butterflies, deer, and other wildlife. Wild blueberries grow there in the mid-summer. There is a large visitors center and Ranger guided educational hikes.

You can`t beat the views that the park provides. Just driving through it and stopping at the many viewing pull offs is worth the admission fee.
